3D printed jet engine

I 3D printed a jet engine. It's not a scale of any particular engine, and the mixer is wacky, but it has all of the major components and was free, so I can't complain too much. Definitely the most complicated thing I've printed to date.

Took a few months of off and on printing to finish all of the parts. Most parts had to be printed multiple times to get them to come out nicely. It took about 5 hours to assemble, much of which was spent trying to get it to turn smoothly without any rubbing. The final product is pretty nice.

I also printed a bunch of other things recently, and updated this post with them.
